Blush Collection

I took a pole on Twitter the other day and asked what kinds of posts you would want to see and 
the results said Collection Posts are what I should do. I was excited to do this and I started with one of my all time favorite things to buy...blush!
This palette has three highlighters and two blushes (far right). The blushes are lovely and I am so impressed with the formula. They blend like a dream and are so buttery.
Tarte
Pin-Up Girl Blush Palette - Holiday 2014
Cheek Stain - True Love, Flush & Muse (Muse - Holiday 2014)
Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed (mini size shown)
Tarte is an amazing brand when it comes to blush. It blends, it's pigmented and it lasts! I love them all. 
Nars -
Dual-Intensity Blush in Adoration
Blush in Sin, New Order & Starscape (Starscape - was part of the Christopher Kane Collection) 
Nars is a brand well know for their blush collection and there is good reason for that. They are lovely, well pigmented and at times unexpected.
Too Faced - Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow
This was one of the first things I ever blogged about. I still love this blush and it's name is the perfect description for the finish.
Urban Decay - Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Bittersweet
This purple blush is unique and gives a very warm finish. It comes off more berry/pink on the skin and last the eight hours.
Clinique -  Cheek Pop in 15 - Pansy Pop
This shade is a barely there kind of color that it perfect for a look that needs just a kiss of color.
Milani - Baked Blush in Luminoso, Dolce Pink & Corallina
First off, this is my number one brand of blushes I recommend at the drugstore. They are right up there in quality with Nars. They have a gorgeous finish and a wide shade range. I could keep going, but I'll just say that you should try them!
Kat Von D - Everlasting Face Shaper Blush in Love Song & Bellisima
These have since been discontinued from the range, but KVD's new blushed look and swatch gorgeously. I may need to pick some up. 
Tigi - Blush in Brilliance
Not many people know that Tigi also does makeup. This blush is a glowing warm pink with golden undertones. It looks very natural and glowing on the cheeks.
NYX - Blush in Red, Coral Dream & Cinnamon
These are lovely for the price and are very pigmented. I think they look very natural and healthy on the cheeks. If you are starting out or want some blush that is outside your comfort zone, give these a try.
Charlotte Tilbury - Cheek To Chic Blush in Sex On Fire
This blush is soooo nice! It blends beautifully, last on the skin, feels like suede and has just the right amount on glow.
Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Brick in Pink (This was a Holiday 2015 item)
Bobbi is all about the glow and healthy skin. This has made me want another shade because this is so nice to use. Glowing skin is my absolute favorite.


So that is my blush collection as of now. I am not doing this post to show off or anything, it was
simply requested. I have this much from blogging, doing makeup freelance and being an all around lover of beauty. It has been a few years of collecting and for me they're like toys. Like video games for some. I hope you liked this post and that it helps you create the perfect makeup bag for yourself.
